Qigong (cultivation of 'Qi', or energy) is central to health and well-being in traditional Chinese medicine and martial arts. At the same time, powers of consciousness (Shen) as well as the qualities of the heart (Xin) play an essential role in healing and the elevation of life. In this unique opportunity with the living founder of Ren Xue, Yuan Gong Qigong, and Yuan Ming Medicine, Chinese life cultivator Yuan Tze takes us on a deep journey into the essence of healing. In particular, this talk explores Total Healing, examining the wholeness and interconnectedness of our lives. An expert in traditional Chinese practices, Yuan Tze is adept at bringing forward and synthesizing ancient wisdom for a modern audience, and this evening's talk includes the opportunity for traditional, 'transmission'-based learning.
This is a unique opportunity for therapists, clinicians, energy arts practitioners, and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) students, as well as for anyone interested in deepening their understanding of the principles of healing and uplifting their lives. Taken as a whole, the theories of Ren Xue provide an integral and holistic view of the universe, providing perspective into Qigong and traditional Chinese wisdom culture, while also helping to make connections with fields as diverse as TCM, clinical counseling, somatic psychology, integral and transpersonal psychology, consciousness studies, and more.
This evening also offers the opportunity to immerse in a strong, healing "Qifield," in which many often report healing and therapeutic effects. While substantive training in Yuan Gong and Ren Xue lies beyond the scope of this presentation, this evening talk with Yuan Tze can serve as a powerful introduction to these traditional practices and as a gateway to healing in participants' lives.
Yuan Tze has taught extensively around the world for over 15 years. His teachings are based on his extensive training in traditional Eastern disciplines such as Qigong, martial arts, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Buddhism, Confucianism, Daoism and Chinese folk culture. He brings together the timeless wisdom of Eastern traditions with Western contemporary philosophy, modern science and technology in the form of Ren Xue, a comprehensive system for life cultivation suited for modern civilization. Yuan Tze has an international following, with regular trips to California, Sweden, New Zealand, Germany, Australia and Portugal. In 2013, Yuan Tze created a Six-Year Yuan Gong, Yuan Ming Medicine, & Ren Xue Teacher Training & Certification Program with an enrollment of hundreds of students from around the world. He has published several books, including the Voyage to the Shore trilogy, New Beginnings, and Well Being Begins with You. This coming year, Yuan Tze Centre will publish a synthesized version of Ren Xue's fundamental theories.
